Everyone knows about the spectacular Trinidad Carnival - but there is so much more to do there. I was there for Carnival last year and after I recovered from partying, I went hiking with a local club. There are several clubs to choose from (locals are enthusiastic hikers)- everything from the 'Hashers' who run through the forest to the Field Naturalists (http://www.wow.net/ttfnc/) who take a more scientific approach and stop to smell the flowers, so to speak. I went with Hike Seekers (www.hikeseekers.com) - the group was mostly of locals, with a sprinkling of visiting yachtspeople and tourists. The core group brought food and a propane cooker into the jungle - a shot of rum and some spicy food by a waterfall - absolutely fabulous experience.
